Chopin: Piano Concertos Nos.1 & 2

Chopin: Piano Concertos Nos.1 & 2


Chopin:

Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11

Orchestre National de l’Opéra de Monte-Carlo, Louis Frémaux

Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21

Orchestre National de l’Opéra de Monte-Carlo, Louis Frémaux

Rondo in C major for two pianos, Op. 73

with Pierre Barbizet (piano)


Samson François was a pianist of mercurial brilliance and mesmeric charisma, capable of extraordinary poetry. The sense of spontaneity in his playing could at times become wilful, even provocative, but he never ceases to exercise his fascination on the listener. Chopin’s music was of essential importance to him, and here he performs both the composer’s piano concertos.
